Tell us about yourself & how you became an artist

I was always drawing as a child and knew I wanted to be an artist when I was around 12 years old.

What is your art addressing? What kind of message do you want to convey through your art?

My art is addressing my perceptions and emotions to the world around me. How I translate my feelings into paint through patterns, color and line and texture. I want my art to be a vessel for an emotional experience.

“I want my art to be a vessel for an emotional experience.”

What kind of emotions do you want to stir in your audience?

I want my work to evoke a joyful feeling or even a meditative and peaceful feeling.

What is your creative process?

I work intuitively and direct using encaustic paint. Each layer is fused with a torch and I build up many layers of wax. I also scrape into the wax and it is an added and subtractive process until the painting tells me when it is finished.

The morning light, coffee, my family, being in the studio.

What impact does living in New York have on you?

My grids are directly influenced by the geometry of the urban landscape. There is an excitement and energy that I also get inspired by.

How has your art changed throughout your career?

For many years, I painted in oils and made abstract landscapes. My art changed drastically when I discovered encaustic paint. My process became more playful and direct.

What do you want people to know about you or your art that we haven't asked?

I love the alchemical process of encaustic. there is something very transformative about it. wax has a feeling of skin. It is soft ert resiliant.
